The Fabien Cousteau Ocean Learning Center (“OLC”) was founded in 2016 as a 501(c)(3) by world renowned oceanographic explorer, conservationist and documentary filmmaker Fabien Cousteau to fulfill his dream of creating a vehicle for positive change in the world.
The OLC focuses on Public Awareness (SEE), Education (LEARN) and Special Projects (DO). Some of these activities and initiatives include: beach cleanups, dive missions, coral reef restoration, sea turtles restoration programs, and educational resources that can be used for elementary grades to the university level, as well as aquarium programming. These components allow us to empower communities and children to help restore local water ecosystems through the healthy “replanting” of key marine species and empower future stewards of ocean conservation.
Through knowledge and innovative technologies regarding ocean preservation, we collaborate with partners to develop educational programs and activities in aquatic conservation, restoration, and marine projects dedicated to protecting the Earth’s waters and its inhabitants for the future of our next generation.
